Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 037 Issued at 2200Z on 06 Feb 2001

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 05-2100Z to 06-2100Z

Solar activity was low. Only a few small C-class flares occurred, including a C1/SF at 05/2321 UTC in Region 9335 (N09E28). This area continues to grow slowly but so far has only produced C-level activity. Region 9339 (S11E47) is the largest sunspot group on the visible disk but does not appear magnetically complex and has not flared in the past 24 hours. New Regions 9341 (S10E23) and 9342 (S26E56) were numbered.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 05-2100Z to 06-2100Z
The geomagnetic field ranged from quiet to active levels. Active conditions were observed at a number of stations during the 06/0600-0900 UTC period. Solar wind information suggest that the Earth has been under influence of a high-speed coronal hole stream since about 06/1700 UTC.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled.
